What's the meaning of "if" in this sentence? I know "if" usually introduces a condition, so in Spanish it may be traslated as "si". But I can't guess the traslation in the following sentence: "I was bored with my easy, if super-busy, Liverpool live". May it be "aunque"? shouldn't we use although instead?

This is correct and idiomatic English. Yes, in this case we are introducing a contrast similar to the use of "aunque" in Spanish. You're right that it's essentially equivalent to "although" or "though".

Btw, that should be "life". ""I was bored with my easy, if super-busy, Liverpool live"" = "I was bored with my easy, although super-busy, Liverpool life."
